Armored vehicles and water cannons were seen deployed in downtown Skopje ahead of today’s protest rally by the VMRO-DPMNE party.

This show of force by the police has become common lately. The protests are organized partially in response to the virtual police siege which was laid around the VMRO-DPMNE main office last month, when party officials and members were searched going in and out of the building, and even the military police was seen deployed in the area.

VMRO-DPMNE is holding its third weekly protest against the process to rename the country – in violation of the expressed will of the citizens and using bribed and blackmailed members of Parliament.
